Forget-Me-Not Day: Budding Poppies!

Hi friends, Happy Saturday! We’re popping in with a quick post to celebrate ‘Forget Me Not’ Day! We’re reminded on this holiday, not just about the beautiful flowers with the name, but that it is so important to remember those near and far and what better way than with a handmade card? Because Poppies are the flowers of remembrance we asked special guest Teri Anderson to make a couple cards featuring this gorgeous flower. Please read on and enjoy!

Hi, Simon friends! I’m excited to be here today to share a couple cards created in honor of Forget Me Not Day with the Budding Poppies stamp set from Technique Tuesday. 
For this first card, I stamped the poppies twice and created a scene of sorts. I colored the flowers with markers and then added a few extra highlights with a dark red colored pencil. 
I sponged blue dye ink all around the flowers and then flicked on a few drops of water. I then whipped out my trusty bottle of Glossy Accents and added a few drops. I just love the look of those drops of Glossy Accents
This second card is quite basic, compared to the first. 
I simply colored the poppies in with markers and then added a lot of drops with Glossy Accents. Even though it’s clean and simple, it’s still a lovely card that is sure to make someone smile.
Thanks for having me today, friends.  It’s always a treat to stop by.
